She was preceded in death by her husband, five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

Fun Story about Doris: When she was in her 80's she decided that she wanted to go trick-or-treating. So on went the mask and black coat to disguise herself and she set out to join in the Halloween festivities. She was a master of disguise and nobody suspected a thing. She ended up with as much candy as all the little kids.
